Nope, but she is a good friend, and writes quite well. The book answers a whole bunch of other questions, too, like how to recommission your drinking water system, which is a subject that comes up regularly.

In general, the posts about using heads and avoiding odors, have been so repetitious on the internet that it would take all of maybe 30 minutes for someone/anyone to do a Google search on the subject and find the answers.

For many years, Peggie had her own Featured Contributor section on sailboatowners.com, which included repetitious answers to the same six questions, with great patience and perseverance.

Doesn't seem that many folks are will to put in the effort to make searches happen though... The number of posts starting with: "I know that this has been discussed before, but I'm too lazy to look..." have increased exponentially recently, IMHO.

Fair enough - another alternative is to ask ones mother, or grand mother depending on your age; they'll have a thousand recipes for killing odours, removing stains etc.

I've tried flushing odor removers, bathroom cleaners, OxiClean, etc. and nothing has diminished the smell. Do I need to take it apart and flush something out? Or should I invest in Peggie's book like what I'd read on other threads?

You're anchored outside the 3 mile line?

Some of those products are probably counter-productive, in an aerobic system.

Depending on the composition of your specific odor(s) and assuming "manual Jabso toilet" means raw water supply, human waste may or may not be the source.

Yes, Peggie's book.
